They do sound almost the same, especially when pronounced by people from France. I think the closest I could find as a way to explain it is "et" should sound like "hay" (without the h), and "es" (or "est") sound more like "head" (without the consonants).
As for there meaning, "et" means "and" and "es" is the verb "to be" in second person (tu es = you are).
Chien should sound something like she-ya-n (but fast and put together and also kinda nasally) and chat should be like sha,can't think of anything better to put these as,cause eng is not my first language
It's just that the audio is really bad,you can't hear which one it is clearly
I keep getting the "write what you hear" questions wrong because I am listening in French and writing what I hear in English. It should say "write what you hear (in French)". I know it's technically correct as it is, but some clarification for dummies like me would be appreciated.
